Squint Entertainment artists Sixpence None the Richer have been honored as Group / Duo of the Year in the 2000 Nashville Music Awards. The Nashville Scene, a Music City weekly, announced the winners in yesterday’s special issue. Sixpence was also recognized in the Song of the Year category for “Kiss Me.”
This month Sixpence is putting the final touches on the follow-up to their Platinum certified self-titled album. Currently untitled, the Squint Entertainment release is slated for a Spring 2001 release.
This years Nashville Music Awards included 160 nominees in 32 categories spanning 14 genres of music. Beginning with their September 28 issue the Nashville Scene published a complete ballot of the nominees throughout a four-week period. Local music fans also voted for their selections in each category by visiting the official online site.
Nominees within each of the 32 categories were selected by groups of judges well-versed in each category and genre. Nominations are based on artistic, rather than commercial, success. Certain categories, including Group / Duo of the Year and Song of the Year, cross genres resulting in rock, blues, country and pop artists rubbing shoulders within a given category.

Partnering with Leadership Music, the Nashville Scene now serves as the presenting sponsor of the 2000 Nashville Music Awards. In addition to
providing balloting and marketing support for the awards, the Nashville Scene published a special section in its new edition announcing the winners and giving detailed bios about each of the nominees.
